The XTBG Summer Camp 2014 for Outstanding College Students was held from August 1 to 5. The Summer Camp brought together 32 outstanding students from 20 universities nationwide.

At the opening ceremony of summer camp on August 1, the campers sang the XTBG song “Our Garden, Our Home” in chorus. Afterwards, XTBG deputy director Zhou Zhekun expressed a warm welcome to all campers and gave a brief introduction to the Garden. He hoped that the campers get happiness and experience success through the visit, study, communication and other activities to approach and understand XTBG.

A series of activities were involved in the summer camp. 16 special themed lectures aroused research interests among the students. The topics included wisdom of bees, pollination biology, coevolution, molecular mechanism of leaf movement, plant physiological ecology, gene function and genetic improvement of woody oil plants, green transformation of energy plants, plant fossils, forest ecology, and global change, etc.

Academic salon, laboratory tours, field trip to 20-ha tropical forest dynamics plot, and volleyball contest all provided the campers pleasant, practical, and meaningful experiences.
